Finding the motivation to get out of the door and run can be difficult at the best of times, and when it rains, storms, hails, or snows, there's a strong temptation to shake it off and better weather waiting.  If you're in a training schedule just before a big event, sometimes you can not move a run because it's raining – especially if it looks like it's raining for days. There is also every chance that the race will take place on a rainy day.
"If you train in the UK for a run, you need to prepare for a rainy race – get rain or snow for 133 days a year," says Graham Ferris, strength and conditioning coach at Pure Sports Medicine.
Luckily Not only did Ferris' precipitation statistics bring resentment and tribulation, but he also gave us some good advice on making the most of a rainy run, be it a training session or a race.
. Choose your shoes carefully
"The sole has to have a good profile to avoid slippery surfaces, not only for safety but also for the application of force," says Ferris. "How can you move forward if your feet just slide backwards? Warm yourself up in another pair of shoes and socks and keep a dry pair for the race – these little things will make your feet look better good health. "
2. Scrub Yourself
"Scouring is very common in wet runs," says Ferris. "Apply a coat of petroleum jelly to areas that are prone to rubbing – inner thighs, underarms, sports bra lining, and your nipples."
. 3 Tightening for the temperature, not the rain
A waterproof top may be useful in wet runs, but it is easy to get dressed in the rain and get uncomfortably hot.
"Apply a wind- or water-repellent layer to the top of a layer that dissipates sweat but adapts more to the temperature," says Ferris. "It's raining – you're getting wet."
. 4 Go For That PB
"Rain can help keep body temperature rising too high, which in turn promotes less body heat, lower heart rate, and perceived effort," says Ferris.
That's right, the rain can be a good thing and can even help you hunt down that elusive PB.
"Some studies found that using an effective body cooling method was almost thirteen seconds for recreational 5km runners," says Ferris.  5. Embrace The Mental Challenge
"Some runners do not care about the rain, because achieving the extra challenge can be rewarding, but some fear it," says Ferris. "Keep reminding yourself that a warm shower is only a moment away."
Your rainy runs will build new confidence in your race, which can be a welcome boost on race day.
"Changing your perception of the task in hand can be a great success factor in difficult conditions," says Ferris. "Is this 19459006 race really as tough as the wet run you did a few weeks ago? Probably not. You have that!
"Each time you successfully place your body outside its comfort zone, your comfort zone increases. They become less nervous under these conditions and feel more psychologically stable. "
. 6 Change, FAST
"Get out of your wet clothes as soon as you can after the run," says Ferris. "Once you stop moving, your body starts to cool down. You do not want this to happen too quickly in these cold and wet clothes, or you may notice signs of hypothermia early on. Grab a garbage bag and change. "
